'American Idol' champ Carrie Underwood: I'm too busy for a boyfriend

By Christopher Rocchio, 05/27/2008 

Carrie Underwood's love life has taken a backseat to her country music career, and the American Idol fourth-season champ said she wouldn't want it any other way.

"If I found something worth finding by now I would have made time for it, but right now I'm so busy I don't need a boyfriend," she told Fox News in a Tuesday report. "This year is the year for me to be on the road and focus just on myself. That's what I want."

Underwood recently split from Gossip Girls actor Chace Crawford after the two began dating last fall

Prior to dating Crawford, Underwood was romantically linked to Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.  She was then rumored to be dating British singer Oliver Trevena in February 2007 before new reports that Underwood and Romo were still romantically involved surfaced in both April and June.  However according to Underwood, the entire Romo romance was a tabloid fabrication.

It's not as though Underwood doesn't have enough on her plate without having to worry about finding Mr. Right

Her second album "Carnival Ride" debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's The Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums album sales charts after its first week of sales last October.  It currently sits at No. 24 on The Billboard 200.

In addition, Underwood claimed Top Female Vocalist honors for the third straight year at the 43rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this month.  However it's an award she wasn't even nominated for -- Entertainer of the Year -- that apparently raised her ire, as no females received a nod in the category.

"I know several amazing female artists who should have won that award over the years and weren't even nominated," Underwood told Fox News. "I know how hard it is to be a woman in this industry. I don't want to take anything away from the guys, but as a woman you do have to work much harder than the men. Plus we have to do it in heels and all."

Underwood is currently headlining her "Carnival Ride Tour" with special guest Josh Turner.
